At just 20 years old, Perth student Radheya Jegatheva is passionate about the arts, and is already an internationally acclaimed filmmaker, artist, poet and writer. Raised in Western Australia, his films have appeared at more than 400 film festivals around the world and won more than 200 international awards. Radheya’s 2017 short film ‘iRony’ launched his international career, winning him 74 awards throughout 2017 and 2018 – including five Academy Award-qualifying film festivals. iRony was developed from Radheya’s poem, Seven Billion, which in 2016 was chosen from over 30,000 entries to win Young Australian Writer’s National Award. Radheya was the 2018 overall winner of the West Australian Young Achiever Award and his works are also used as a teaching tool in schools and universities around the world. While most of his experience originates behind the camera, Radheya has had some minor acting roles in short film and is looking for more small roles on screen. Radheya is furthering his experience with film as a third-year student in his Double Degree of Screen Arts and Marketing at Curtin University.
